Your Presario SR2150NX System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

Graphics Card:

PCI Express x16 Graphics

External Connector: 15-hole connector

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display. Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate they support. These parameters are also limited by the monitor to which the adaptor is connected.

                  The system was extremely slow to respond with the basic 0.5Gb of memory. Disk Defragmentation took over 24 hours with the hard-drive partitioned at factory default. Running additional applications at the same time was impossible - now, it can run multiple applications with little hesitancy.

                  Wow. Upgrading from 512MB to 2 GB helps!

                    Upgrading the memory to 2 GB (from 512MB) made a big difference in performance and response. My PC had a Celeron D processor and 512MB RAM. I was having lots of "Not Responding" messages and kept having to restart. I recently upgraded from DSL to cable connection, and I was getting somewhat better loading of web pages, but still had problems with slow response. If I was using a browser and tried to open an Excel sheet, the Excel would take a minute or two (or more) to load, and not much better even if no browser open.

                    However, now it just takes a few seconds (4 sec, just now). And everything else works so much better, and almost never see a "Not Responding" message anymore.

                    So, for about $40 to upgrade the RAM, I feel like my PC is acting like new.

                      The memory chips were just what the doctor ordered. I was having so many problems running my PC. Once I replace the chips, I couldn't believe how much faster my PC was.

                      Thank You
